Dear members,

The coming weeks will be filled with studying for most of us. For this reason, Cover organises support lectures for Statistics (for both AI & CS), Neurophysics and Imperative Programming. If you feel like your knowledge in those subjects could be better, don't shy away from showing up there!

On Monday, Morten Bakker from ASML is visiting us to talk about his experience as an engineer. In the past, he has done research on various subjects, including quantum computing. He will tell about his various research subjects and what ASML does with for example image recognition. If you are interested make sure to check it out. Bonus: there will be free lunch afterwards!

On Thursday afternoon, we will get a short introduction into the capabilities of High Performance Computing and Visualisation, and a short demo of the reality center facilities. After that, the Geodienst will give us a Geographic Information Systems workshop where you will learn the basics of QGIS. You might even learn to use some tools that can help you figure out the answer to the age-old question of whether Beijum is part of Groningen! Due to limited seating, we can only offer 15 places for this workshop so sign up soon!

Finally, also on Thursday, there is a special TAD in the Cover room: Bocktober. Since the autumn has officially started, and leaves are falling from trees it is time for some proper autumn bock beers. We will supply the beers and some snacks for you to enjoy!

Good luck with your upcoming deadlines and exams!

All the best,



Nice to know!

The ParenTee is the committee responsible for showing the studies and university to students' parents. They do this by organising a parents day where you can invite your parents to take a tour. If you want to show your parents or your peers parents around, sign up for this committee.


The PubliciTee is the committee that designs, create and prints posters for Cover. They assure the quality of the Cover's posters, so that committees are able to focus on other tasks, without having to worry about posters.


Is there a topic of which you could never tire? You would like to hear about different experts from the field for a whole afternoon? Then organising a symposium is right up your alley! The SympoCee organises a symposium every year for this very purpose, to educate Cover members on a wider range of topics.


The YearbookCee is very much self explanatory. They create the yearbook for every academic year. In this committee you get to decide the theme, design and create the content of the yearbook. You want a way to make your mark in Cover for years to come? The best place to do this is in the Yearbook.
